Larissa Habib, MD, at Northeast Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, in Fairfield, Connecticut, is a board-certified Oculofacial surgeon, specializing in the form, function, health, and the beauty of eyes.
Why choose an Oculofacial Surgeon?
Your eyes not only give you sight, but are also what scholars have long acknowledged to be a focal point of your facial features. They are the first thing people will notice about you, and as multiple studies show, significantly influence first impressions.
Your eyes and the structures around them form a complex yet delicate ecosystem, going beyond the scope of general plastic surgery.
